West Ham Official Excuses
West Ham have finally confirmed that George McCartney has left the club for a 'substantial fee'. The club say they had no choice but to sell McCartney after he handed in a written transfer request because his wife could not settle in the area.
This means that West Ham have taken in the region of £13-16 million in the last week in transfer fees with no concurrent outlay. It also means the club are left with no recognised left back.
